Alexander Wang’s after parties have become legendary among the fashion set and with good reason. There’s always a fun, kitschy theme, perfect music, and an impossibly cool crowd that’s not afraid let go of the pretense for a sec and have a good time. This season, his fete took place in an old bank near wall street. Bank tellers were replaced by bartenders and party staffers were bank robbers clad in president face masks. Music was loud and ’90s, heavy on the hip hop. Die Antwoord and Busta Rhymes gave performances that I sadly left too early to see.
As for the crowd: Within the endless sea of models, we almost didn’t recognize a heavily bearded Jared Leto until we looked into those unmistakable Jordan Catalano eyes. Jenna Lyons walked in with Solange Knowles and Courtney Crangi, with whom she looked to be having a really really good time.
